Philip Hammond, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, is visiting Argentina for trade talks, the most senior Minister to visit the country for sixteen years. Hammond will also visit Brazil along with a British trade delegation.
Hammond said in a statement:
“The UK has always been a global leader, and I am here to showcase our successful businesses and keep strengthening our links with dynamic, growing economies around the world.
Today’s dialogue has created exciting new opportunities for partnership between the UK and Brazil, Latin America’s largest economy. I am very pleased to be accompanied by executives from some great British companies with world-leading expertise, to help facilitate deeper economic and trade links between our two countries”.
